Methylprednisolone 4 mg is intended to over-ride your natural steroid production and decrease inflammation. it also affects virtually every cell. You can take together, and according to Rx.

Had depo-medrol steroid injection on19th for allergies. Had shoulder surgery 3 weeks ago. Which painkillers are safe to take? Hydrocodone/acetaminophen?

None interact with: Injection, which is a small amount of drug in one spot and not everywhere. Frankly, the slight risk is the meloxicam (aspirin like drugs potentially increasing the bleeding risk of the injection). then there are separate issues about the safety of narcotics/tylenol/etc cannot say in your particular case, but generally, safe.

Why does medicine (e.g. tylenol (acetaminophen) pm) make some people tired when they take it?

Why does medicine (e.g. tylenol (acetaminophen) pm) make some people tired when they take it?

Tylenol (acetaminophen) PM: Contains a sedating antihistamine known as diphenhydramine (aka Benadryl) and the purpose is to help people fall asleep. So it's not unexpected that a sleep aid would cause people to be sleepy. On the other hand, in some people it can cause insomnia. Drugs do tend to have the desired effect in most, but not all people. If you want a drug that doesn't make you sleepy, use regular Tylenol (acetaminophen).
